Shock Absorption

When you are training or playing sports, the chances are that you are going to be running around a lot and putting pressure on your ankles and knees.

Everyone loves it when their footwear can give them a little spring in their step. That little bounce that you get when you have extra cushioning underfoot can help give you an edge when you are participating in any kind of sport. Thankfully the Dr. Scholl’S Sport Massaging Gel Advanced Insoles can offer you a responsive ride so you will experience that bounce in your step while you're on the go.

When you step into your insole, your feet will sink down into the cushioning. However, the padding will want to quickly bounce back to its original form so it will propel you forward a little. This helps push you off into your next step, saving you just a sliver of energy that would have otherwise been used to push yourself forward.

The massaging waves are for more than just providing comfort. They act like little springs that you can bounce off of when you take a step.

How to Use

These inserts are extremely easy to use; it's barely an inconvenience. It is a simple four-step process, and then you are good to go.

First, you take the current insole out of your sneakers, whether they are the ones that came with the shoes or the ones that need replacing. Usually, when you purchase new sneakers, they come with removable insoles so you can swap them out with products like these if need be.

Then, you just put the new insole into your sneakers. If the insert fits, then you are done and don't need to follow through with the next two steps. If it doesn't fit, then don't worry.

If you need to trim the insole, you can simply cut along the outline that is located on the bottom of the sole (near the toes). You will want to find the outline that matches your shoe size and cut along that one.

A small tip to make things a little easier. If your current insole is removable, you can use that as a guide to trimming this one. You simply set it over top of the new insole and trace it. You can use that line as a guide to cut so you are sure to get a perfect size the first time you cut.

Finally, you insert the product into your shoes. Make sure you are putting the gel side down.

Viola, you are good to go.
